The gentleman's name at the entrance of the restaurant is PePe. He attracted so many people in the restaurant that he would deserve a bonus in Canada. Great show and awesome man.

Amazing food, great atmosphere, friendly staff, 2 for 1 drinks. The line soup is to die for, the Huevos Benedictos is the most amazing breakfast I have ever eaten. With crispy bacon and fried tomato. Delectable. A musty go to restaurant on 5th avenue of Playa Del Carmen!!

We stopped here for lunch during a day on 5th Ave. It is a super cute little place and I love the décor and openness. The food was amazing and the guac was to DIE for! We visited last year in February and we will be returning next week when we are in Playa again!

We have had a home in the area for 13 years and we come back here for both breakfast and lunch many times. We have never been anything but pleased. Their breakfast choices include all the fine Mexican offerings such as Motulenos and America favorites as well such as great pancakes. We love their falafal for lunch and the tacos... More
